Join us in Lesvos. Enjoy Greece and see our work.
Our 4 Day Impact Trip
The WWBT trips are specially and intentionally curated for education, inspiration and connection. All small group trip profit is used to support WWBT's operations on the island and our mission to provide displaced people with a place to experience happiness, dignity, and purpose.
Furthermore, all of our trip expenses - from the hotel we stay at, to the restaurants we eat at, to the buses we travel in and excursions we take - support locally owned businesses. Working with refugees and migrants on the island since 2015, we have come to love the land and know the locals like family. Many of their businesses have struggled while enduring an economic depression and a significant dip in tourism due to the refugee crisis.
In short, every dollar we spend on this trip really counts towards something important.
What To Expect
Due to its location, Lesvos has become the epicenter for refugee migration to Europe, with over one million people passing through the island since 2014.
Throughout the week we will dive deep into the European Migration Crisis and share how the situation how changed and taken shape since we first began our work on the island in 2015.
WWBT's 4 day trips are about convening motivated and curious change makers with a purpose-led agenda. The week in intentionally scheduled with insight and education and facilitated conversations around real-world solutions while offering the time to unwind, connect and experience the beauty of the local culture and landscape.
"Traveling to Lesvos with WWBT was one of the best experiences of my life. The WWBT center is bringing hope and joy to women and children in the most desperate circumstances, and the opportunity to support is true magic. We enjoyed stunning accommodations, fun sightseeing and delicious food, and left the trip with lifelong friends. Can’t wait to return!"
"After visiting Lesvos with When We Band Together I'll never think about the refugee crisis the same way again and I'll never forget the beautiful resilient human beings that I met there who the world has forgotten. The people I traveled with will be lifelong friends and lifelong allies in the fight for those we left behind."
"Traveling to Lesvos with WWBT gave me an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. The schedule is thoughtful, meaningful, educational and also fun! Every detail is intentionally crafted and taken care of so I didn't have to stress about a thing. I learned so much and left feeling more connected, inspired, and energized."
